Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We were very impressed by this beautiful cottage. Well equipped, very spacious and comfortable. We had 3 generations of family plus a large lurcher dog and fitted in very well. Would thoroughly recommend. Location excellent. It did rain a lot but we still had plenty to do and see. June 2012.
  2. Lovely, well-appointed cottage near Dorchester, within walking distance of Maiden Castle and Hardy’s Monument. Good enclosed garden with shared use of paddock next door. Comfortable and tasteful, in a lovely part of Dorset. May 2012.
  3. The cottage was very comfortable, warm and spacious, and extremely relaxing. Attention to detail was excellent and all equipment was of a very high standard. The welcoming gifts were very much appreciated. The pub is very close by and there is also a farm shop which was OK, but there is a small Waitrose only 5 minutes drive away in Poundbury. March 2012.
